Need to add Harwood to District 6 in Class B as they weren't on the original post.

Changes to B are great. Not sure why Hatton and Nelson County aren't switched, but I'd be very happy with these changes overall. This also addresses the challenges having a host team presents. 7 districts plus 1 host team makes it easy to figure out who's going to state.

The next step is somehow addressing the 3 class system.
- There has to be a way to get a 16 team AA league right? Make Fargo have 3 teams, Bismarck, Dickinson, Grand Forks, Mandan, and West Fargo 2 teams each, and Williston, Minot, and Jamestown 1 team. I understand this waters down some of the teams as they try to progress further on than just ND play, so it's not perfect, but a 9 team class is crazy!
- Put the remaining 50 teams in Class B. 6 districts with 7 and one with 8.
- If 3 classes have to be, having some junior legions from your Class AA teams in A and some in B just seems out of place. Get them all in the same class.

Yea I just don't see Beulah, Casselton, Kindred, and Surrey that much better and bigger that they are in a division with all the class A school towns/teams. AA I think should be 16 and have 2 regions.

It's to bad that four of the top teams in the state are all in the same district.

District#5-Thompson, Larimore, Park River, Grafton, Hatton, Minto, and Langdon.

Those kind of things are cyclical in any sport.

someone mentioned it, but why aren't Hatton and Nelson County switched?

Pretty sure it's Hatton-Northwood too.

Well I am not saying I don't disagree with you. One thing to consider is Nelson County is the Midkota-Dakota Prairie-Griggs County-Lakota co-op. So half of the kids are from Midkota and Griggs County. This puts them very close to Hope and other towns to the south.

Also you put NC with Thompson, Grafton, Langdon, and Park River. Think of the state tournament appearances or championships with between these 5 teams if they are all in one.

Nelson County is the team you could put in about 4 different sections.

This should not have any bearing.

I never said it should. I was just stating look at the state tournament appearances.

I agree district 5 is loaded region with Thompson, Grafton, Park River, Langdon, and Hatton its not just this year but has been for at least last 20 years all these towns have good baseball programs. This coming year all them should have above average teams and with only one them reaching the state it will make for very competitive district tournament. I could see two of the five reaching the high school state tournament next year and both would be one of the favorites to win the state high school tournament.
